The Call Sheet sifts through the day's glut of Hollywood news to find the stories even non-industry types care about. Today: Ryan Seacrest has an announcement, Katy Perry has announced her latest dropping, and Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels may be teaming up again.
It seems that Ryan Seacrest is poised to make a "big NBC announcement" on the Today show tomorrow, which could mean many things. It might mean, like it did for Meredith Vieira this morning, that he'll be joining their Olympics coverage team, or it could mean something else, some other kind of big announcement. Some more personal kind of NBC announcement, perhaps? "I'm Ryan Seacrest and I am a fan of Smash." "I'm Ryan Seacrest and I've watched every episode of Fashion Star." "I'm Ryan Seacrest and my favorite character on The Office is Oscar." You know, that kind of NBC announcement? Hey, it could happen. [Deadline]
Katy Perry, the scientifically proven reincarnation of Michael Jackson, is releasing a hotly anticipated concert film this summer — it will be a bigger music movie than Hard Days Night and Cool As Ice put together — and the release date has just become official. Or sort of official. The movie, called
Phony Teen Nostalgia and Gay Exploitation Katy Perry: Part of Me, will be released on July 4th weekend. Fitting, as Perry plans to beam the film into theaters herself using her whip cream breast cannons that she's retrofitted into satellite dishes that also shoot out fireworks. She's such an important artist! [E!, via Vulture]
